“Admitting this to myself is a sharp blow to my pride, as, with the exception of my six-year-old self’s desire to marry Dr. Halsal, I’d always thought I was above being fascinated by anyone but myself.”—The Scorpio Races, Maggie Stiefvater (via alienors)
“My mother always said that I was born out of a bottle of vinegar instead of born from a womb and that she and my father bathed me in sugar for three days to wash it off. I try to behave, but I always go back to the vinegar.”—Puck, The Scorpio Races (via sandy-scribblesaur)
Oh my God, that book is beautiful. I guess I’m gonna buy it in my language when it’s coming out in Italy. I didn’t buy the italian edition of Mockinjay, but I’m buying the italian edition of The Scorpio Races: when I said beautiful, I meant it.
George Holly, and Puck, and Sean, and Finn, and Gabe, and all the others characters. And the island. And Corr. And all the other horses. Yesyesyes I’m gonna buy it in italian too, sure. Suresuresuresuresuresure.
